1 week -- 6 weeks: Depending on the route (cream, injections, or testosterone pellets), some men can experience an increase in their energy, improvements in their sleep, and changes in their mood, concentration, and focus as early as one week. For others, it may take as much as 6 weeks to reach peak hormone levels and peak response rates.

1-3 months: Raising one's testosterone level has effects throughout the body. The endocrinologist who is prescribing the testosterone will have the most accurate answer to "how long before a patient notices improvement". Probably the improvements in mood and sexual interest will come first, maybe in a month. The changes in skin, hair, penis, testicles, muscles, blood, etc., will probably come in 3 months.
